Classic rue Bonaparte

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

Improbable Walks, Season 4, Episode 7 In this episode, we stroll up the street where New Yorker writer Janet Flanner lived, where the Beaux Arts school still stands, and of course, where de Beauvoir and Sartre once held court... The rue Bonaparte is a Left Bank Saint-Germain classic. This is one of my favourite photos from the Deux Magots: Janet Flanner & Ernest Hemingway, at the end of World War II. Even in this posed photo, their friendship shines through.
